      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Justin:

Where'd the pic go? Those were real nice fish! Now as to the lake. Let's see get the boat hooked up, put the tackle in, drive to lake, launch boat, stumble upon fish, at least 1 in the picture was 18" so that may leave out The Garden, Fall, White Iron chain and its 17"-26" slot. I'll guess Shag or Fall. Anyway, nice fish. I'm jealous.

Are the public docks at the ramps still in the water? Closing down the shack next week and want to get after it one more time before ice up.

Hey Guys,

I got busted by the forum police. Apparently, you aren't supposed to post pictures of fish that are "out of their natural habitat or fish that are in a bucket".

NoMiss: There are ALOT of lakes that do not have a slot limit that hold nice fish up here. No, I did not fish on a lake that had a slot limit. It was just as you said, hook the boat up, launch, and start catching fish...which is what made it such a great day. Anyways, I am not sure about the docks...I was at a landing that never has one. Maybe G. Outdoors might know.

Hey Kallista, Do you mean that minnow pond on the north side of the highway just before the Tofte landing? Or Glacier Pond which is directly across the road from the Tofte landing and down that dirt road?

Not too sure how fishing will be this week...There is a cold front about to go past us. I don't think I am going to be able to get out for the next 10 days or so...which is a bummer. I guess someone else will have to get out there and slay 'em! grin.gif

Instead of turning left for Tofte you go right, down a dirt road and its on your right side, its a trout area too, you part up on top of the hill and walk down the path...

Just wanted to know hows the fishing there.. i ride through there alot just bumming out in the woods...

What was the water temp on Sag when you went?

Yeah, that is called Glacier Pond #1. I have never fished it before, but have always wanted to. Maybe go out there and give it a try...if all else fails, you can always try Glacier Pond #2. I believe it is just a little further down the road. Check the DNR's Website under "Lakefinder" to see if there was a recent survey out of those lakes. I am sure Great Outdoors will chime in on this one.

People are telling me water temps are running around 58 degrees as of last week. I haven't check anything personally.

Later,

Justin

Yep, that's Glacier 1, 2 is down the road further but I think there is a locked gate between 1 & 2that the summer home owners have a key to.

Trapped minnows in 1, half the lake is shallow, half is deep.

Water temp was 58 degrees two days ago, not much colder today, but will start to cool down tomorrow with the expected snow.

FYI, Burntside was an inch above its highest level ever this morning, should be even higher the next few days. Many a dock will be destroyed next spring with water this high. mad.gif

JustinG, nice mess of fish.

However there are forum rules for fish pictures. Those rules are in the forum policy for those that aren't sure.

Thanks Steve.

A big part of the policy is about composition and natural settings. Something that you'd blow up, frame, and hang in your living room.

Hunting Picture Guidelines

• Take photo in field before field dressing.

• Take photo closeup.

• Have weapon in photo (bow or gun) - not required.

• Wear hunting clothes.

• Do not sit on deer for photo.

• Clean up visible blood and make sure deer’s tongue doesn’t show.

• No sunglasses, beer cans or cigarettes.

Please click the Register link and read the policy before posting.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help in promoting pictures taken with good taste.

Dead Fish Pics Rule

We do respect legitimate harvest of fish and do so ourselves. We are very high on selective harvest for wise stewardship of our lakes, rivers and streams.

The responsible thing to do on a heavily traveled site like this is to heavily promote Catch, Photo and Release and especially selective harvest which has a CPR theme running through it, with photos in these forums.

Besides encouraging Selective Harvest we also encourage cameras in the boat for better looking photos to be taken. This provides one less reason to keep a fish, the photo proves you caught it and it sure looks a LOT better here and in your photo album.

We're looking for fish pictures in good taste that encourage selective harvest principles so the dead fish rule is as follows: Fish pictures must be in the natural environment where the fish is caught that do not look frozen, stiff, bloodied or look like they were just poured out of a bucket and no stringer or fish in a bucket pics. Fish Mount and live release tournament pictures are ok as well. All other dead fish pictures are not allowed.

Please click the Register link and read the policy before posting.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help in promoting selective harvest and better photos.

Hey Surface Tension,

Honestly, It was my mistake. I totally spaced that one. No one was around to take my picture with the fish, so I improvised. We are all cool.

Can't wait to get out there again!

Justin, I hear ya, its tough to take a picture when your by yourself. I know a photo guy that I like to have around just in case I catch something, he lives in your area now. I don't mind sharing him as long as you remember he was mine before you. grin.gif

You guys. The only time I charge a fishing buddy a fee for taking a pic of a fish is when I have to use photoshop to turn a guppy into a trophy. Frank knows. That so-called 29-lb laker he's got on the wall at home is really a graphite replica of a photo of a 4-lber that I doctored in photoshop to look like a PIG. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Now you guys have spilled the beans and Great Outdoors will have his mug in the Angler even more now!!! Geez, it was bad enough when he was holding up his mailbox saying it was an 8 l.b. Walleye he caught on Burntide! He really gave himself away though, when he left the flag up! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Great Outdoors + chubs + photoshop = trophy photos in Angler.

Why do you think Jimbo opened a bait store in the first place? With a face like that, a guy's gotta be holding a REALLY BIG fish to get in the paper. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Keep the reports coming Curt, much appreciated.  Unfortunately, I'm not able to get back up there until September 22-25th., so it going to be tough keeping my mind on work and not LOW.  Are you just moving around in the basin until you mark a school of fish, and then jigging them?  I see all of your waypoints on the screen you showed, so those must be spots that have held fish at one time.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time. "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100.
